American Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir and former beau Victor Voronov are fighting over their pet dog.
Weir announced the dissolution of their marriage March 19 on his Twitter. The couple got married at the end of 2011.
People reports their divorce is starting to get messy as Voronov filed papers to a New Jersey court to get financial support and custody of their dog Tëma.
Voronov wants to have their Japanese Chin dog back because Weir had given it to him as "a 'make-up gift' after [Voronov] caught [Weir] sexting with another man."
Voronov went on to say that he was the sole provider for Tëma.
"I trained him, walked him, took him to the veterinarian," said Voronov. "As a direct result of often being home alone while [Weir] was promoting his 'image,' it is Tëma that kept me company."
Weir posted a picture of the dog on his Instagram. He captioned the picture with, “Such a happy face to come home to after a very long day! #Тёма #japanesechin.”
TMZ reports that a love letter Weir wrote Voronov surfaced. Voronov said the letter was written before Weir left for the Oscars.
